When do newly registered users become registered users?

Post by HighlyAdaptive » Fri Jul 08, 2016 1:44 am

Just wondering is their a time limit of when new users become registered users or do I have to promote them manually?

There is a setting called "New member post limit" in the User registration settings under the General tab in your ACP. It allows you to set the amount of posts that a user needs to have to be placed out of the Newly Registered Users group. So it's really not a matter of a specified amount of time, but rather a matter of having posted (and having had approved, by default) a specified amount of posts. :)

Is there a way where I can set it up to where they need to be on for a certain amount of time rather than by post?

No, you'd have to modify one of the PHP files.

You could try the Auto Groups MOD - https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/auto_groups

I am not sure if it works with later versions of phpBB 3.0

And note that Newly registered users are also in the Registered users group from the beginning. It is just that the NRU has permissions that block some permissions that they, as Registered users, would otherwise have.

Are you asking this because of spam?

Pretty much. I ran a forum about half a year ago which got really popular but we had lots of issues with people spamming or making multiple accounts, etc. I'm bringing it back and do not want to deal with the same c**p again.

You are going about it in the wrong way. One good (non-searchable) Q&A, combined with a post limit of one for the NRU, will stop 99.99% of spam.
